Soak up the wine culture in a land that produces wines that are world renowned for their quality. Ancient wisdom and cutting-edge technology: the know-how of a culture that has made wine its passion.
We will leave San Sebastian early in the morning and after a scenic drive of 1,5h approx. we will get to Rioja Valley, a land where the people live by and for wine. We will go to 2 winebars, from Classical Rioja wineries to small boutique family owned ones, hopping in to their wine bars, to taste the best wines of each winery. All this in a friendly, personalized and unhurried manner. After the tastings we will visit a winery where you will learn how to taste wines which will fascinate your palate. From the vineyard to the labelling of the bottles; becoming familiar with the secrets of the entire process will enable you to understand why Rioja wines enjoy the prestige they do.
For lunchtime you will be served a traditional Riojan style hot & cold tapas based meal paired with Rioja red wine. Lunch could be served on an outdoor terrace, overlooking their vineyards or at a unique private cellar carved out of the bedrock. After lunch, we will visit the charming town of Laguardia, a small picturesque town that is somewhat unreal, as from a fairy tale, with its narrow cobbled streets, with its ancient walls and with that medieval touch of distinction that fascinates travelers so much. Before coming back we will take you to get external views and photo opportunities of the unique architecture wineries as Marques del Riscal & Ysios.
